I've really got to give this guy a lot of respect. Knowing what it is like to be taking a lot of gear with you to take photos (like the recent Intermot), you are worn down to the bone. But this guy not only has to take all his gear with him, but also his wheelchair, and he has to hold on for dear life sitting behind the motorcycle. And then take photos in a war zone.

Wheelchair-bound Palestinian freelance photographer Moamen Qreiqea holds his wheelchair as he rides on a motorcycle past murals of late leader Yasser Arafat (R) and late Hamas spiritual leader Ahmed Yassin, on a street in Gaza City October 1, 2012. Qreiqea, 25, lost both his legs in an Israeli air strike in 2008 while taking pictures east of Gaza. The father of two is determined to continue his career despite his disability.
